The best laid plans of mice and men...as the saying goes. There were big plans for me this weekend and next week. Today I was to travel to my friend Deb's house, spend the night then we were to head toward Ligonier, PA tomorrow morning.
The person who tends Ben when I go to camps (my ex) is very sick and didn't know until maybe two weeks ago he couldn't do it. At first I decided to leave Ben at a kennel but had complications there. And frankly, it was just too stressful for me so dropped out of class. This was a huge soul searching decision as I'm sure all of you know since I enjoy her camps and respect the knowledge Barb Carroll shares with her students.
My plans included binding the Magdalena Goat rug on the car ride to Ligonier. It won't happen in the car so have decided to start it now.
Oops, I see that the photo was cropped too closely on the right side but only just around the corner was whipped. So you can see there is more left to whip on the rug ~ sure hope my math was right and there is enough yarn to finish.
The other plan was to hook the pattern Gossip in Barb's class. While I'll miss my gal pals and Barb's expertise am still planning to hook Gossip. Even tho we will be states apart from one another will start hooking the rug on Monday along with everyone else.
The gals have promised to keep me informed of happenings at camp, and I'll show you my progress on Gossip as well as things they share with me about camp.
Oh, on a side note, my boy Ben sniffed out this turtle which was on the side of my driveway getting ready to cross. By the time we got back from a quick walk it was already well hidden in the periwinkle. I understand turtles always return to the same property to lay their eggs each year.
